Default Cobra replica manufacturers in Canada

As everyone knows by now, it is not permitted to import "kit cars" into Canada from the U.S. or anywhere else. Therefore, I thought it might be helpful to post a list of Cobra replica manufacturers operating in Canada. I've done what I could to ensure the list is up to date, but please feel free to add information as necessary.

One important caveat: In no way does this list represent an endorsement regarding any of these companies. You are advised to conduct your own careful due diligence in choosing a Cobra kit supplier.

You can add Brownlow's Performance in Coquitlam BC
He does not do complete kits
He does have fiberglass moulds for GT40, shelby mustang stuff, and I believe cobra coupe.

His glass work on the shelby mustang stuff is better than anything I have seen from branda or anywhere else.

I cannot tell you how his coupe or gt40 glass is compared to others
He's busy so it takes a while to get stuff.
He put some carbon fibre in areas of my hood (latch/hinge etc) to add strength

No, I'm afraid that Superformance Canada was forced out of business in 2007 by the federal department of transportation.

I think so. I contacted most (but not all) of them in my recent Cobra research. Let me know if you know otherwise, and I'll edit my original post.

I've noticed that the website for Pigeon Performance is no longer active. Does anyone know whether Michel is still in business, or whether he's closed up shop?

Sundude

Great post , I never realized there were so many companies still building replica cobras in Canada

It should also be noted that buyers be very careful about buying a car built out of your home province as I believe it is illegal to ship the cars across provincial boundries unless they have been previously registered in the province of origin , as well the rules for registering these cars can be completely different province to province

Just a helpful note for anyone interested

Hello SunDude,

Just wanted to let you know that Pigeon Performance was burnt down a few weeks back. I do not know the status of the shop, but I heard it was a total loss.

Frank, what terrible news that is for Michel and his customers!

Looks like the fire, which started accidentally on Easter weekend, completely destroyed his business and any Cobras that were inside the garage at the time. Total damages of $500,000. At least no one was hurt.

Some posters on other forums said that he was fully insured and is planning to re-open later this year. I wish him well.

Here are some YouTube links and articles about the carnage.
Fire engulfs Ste. Julienne garage
By Monique Muise, The Montreal Gazette
April 3, 2010

MONTREAL – No one was injured when a major fire engulfed a garage in Ste. Julienne, about 60 kilometres north of Montreal in Lanaudière, early Saturday afternoon.

A spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec confirmed the fire started around noon and spread to a nearby home. The blaze was under control by 6 p.m.

The garage, Pigeon Performance, is located along Route 125 in Ste. Julienne.


Quelques instants après le début de l’incendie.
Pigeon Performance s’envole en fumée

par Jean Joubert, l'Action
le 9 avril 2010 à 11:28

L’un des fleurons commercial de Sainte-Julienne, Pigeon Performance, a complètement été détruit par un incendie quelques heures avant Pâques. Un incendie d’une rare intensité a totalement rayé de la carte Pigeon Performance, le spécialiste des voitures Cobra. L’incendie, de nature accidentelle, a débuté vers 15 h 40. Lors de la l’arrivée des pompiers, la caserne étant située juste en face de l’entreprise, les flammes avaient déjà une longueur d’avance sur les sapeurs. « Nous avons été surpris de
l’ampleur de l’incendie. Une épaisse fumée noire se dégageait et les flammes avaient envahi l’ensemble de la structure. », a indiqué le chef du service de Sainte-Julienne. », Éric Ducasse. Les pompiers de Rawdon et de Saint-Esprit ont été appelés en renfort pour combattre le feu. « C’est l’une de nos bonnes sorties. », a ajouté M. Ducasse. Ce n’est que vers 21 h 30 que le brasier a été éteint. Heureusement, personne n’a été blessé lors de cet incendie. Une personne, qui était dans l’appartement au-dessus du garage, a pu quitter les lieux.

Voitures de collection
L’entreprise de Michel Pigeon est une perte totale. Selon nos informations quelques véhicules de collection ou en voie de la devenir ont pu être sauvés des flammes. Au bas mot, on estime les pertes à plus de 500 000 $.

That's really too bad. Canada loses one of its longest-running Cobra replica manufacturers. Any idea how many cars Michel completed in his 20+ years?

I have no idea how many cars Michel made. I do know the Boss Replica Motors Has built 36 cars and kits over the past 12 years. Bret Ward makes them totally by hand, one car at a time, by himself. The glass shell is ONE PIECE and is hand laid.
Boss Replica Motors is building me a 427 Cobra. Completion date is March 1 2012.

I don't know whether anyone has successfully imported an ERA kit, since Transport Canada started clamping down a few years ago. ERA's kits tend to be fairly complete, which might be a problem vis-a-vis TC and Canada Customs. Maybe Bob from ERA, or another owner could chime in here.

The subject of importing Cobra kits into Canada has been covered extensively on this forum. You should do a few searches and read up on what you find. Here's one to get you started.

Ultimately if you want to import an ERA kit, you're going to have to figure out how to ensure that enough parts are excluded/unattached so that TC/Customs do not consider it an "unassembled motor vehicle" at the time of importation. This is the key.

A lot of guys have imported Factory Five kits into Canada, so you might want to connect with them to see what can/cannot be included in your shipment.

Default Shelby American and Superformance in Canada

For the record, Nevada Classics, based at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, can export both Shelby CSX-6K and Hi Tech built (Superformance) MK III starter kits into any Canadian province. By following the proper procedures, it is completely legal. We fully adhere to Transport Canada's rules and regulations.
